Heh, I've mostly adapted to the "new ways" - PRAISE BE TO OUR
SAVIOR THE EXPORT COMMAND! I AM NO LONGER A HEATHEN
BROTHERS! but it's still *very fun *to see this "Smug Developers Vs.
The Stupid Backlash that Wouldn't Die" movie franchise unfold in
My main problem with the export faith is that now, one does not simply
overwrite into a PNG image after enabling transparency. But what can
I do, if I'm just a body among the ignorant, unwashed masses, upon
which the glory of the Gimp shines, without ever being able to completely
grasp its radiant holyness? PRAISE BE TO THE EXPORT COMMAND!
FOR IT IS CODED THAT THROUGH THE EXPORT COMMAND IS THE
PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT, SALVATION AND PHOTO EDITING!
I have been proven willing to use the holy export command, and thus
worthy of the heavenly gift that main branch Gimp is!
But to lose patience against a powerless, trickling ragtag bunch of
trolls, not only ignorant and unwashed but UNFAITHFUL, and in ill
will refusing to accept the good news and renewing ways of the HOLY
EXPORT COMMAND? That sure is a sign of a faltering faith.
